Triethylene glycol dimethacrylate (TEGDMA) is a common component of resin-based dental composites and endodontic sealers. TEGDMA induces apoptosis in several types of cells. However, the mechanisms are not completely understood. The aim of this study was to investigate the mechanisms underlying TEGDMA-induced apoptosis in human embryonic palatal mesenchymal (HEPM) pre-osteoblasts and primary human dental pulp (HDP) cells. Cell viability was examined after TEGDMA treatment. Cell cycle… CONTINUE READING
